ESTATE or GEORGE NAPPER. 

To his Excellency Joseph Reed Esqr., President and the 
Honourable the Supreme Executive CouiiCii of the Common- 
wealth of Pennsylvania. 

The Representation and claim of John Brown, of the City 
of Philadelphia Cabinet-maker, on behalf of George Napper, 
late of the said City Loaf Bread Baker. 
Respectfully shcweth, 

That some time in the Winter in the year 1778, George 
Napper went from the City to accompany an antient Friend 
well known by the Name of Thomas Gawihrop on his Return 
to Great Britain, whilst the British Army was in the possession 



INVENTOHIIJS AND SALKS. :.:•; 

of rhiladelphla. That he never aided as>is:>u.d or abetted them 
any other Ways than in the course of his Trade and liuiUiess, 
whiih he w.is necessitated to do fur his Subsistance. That be 
left tho City with the t'unciirreuce of the Society of the 
Peoiile caliM' c;iia»<ers, as appears by the annexed Kxiract 
of a Minm.' taken from their Meeting lioolv which is evidence 
In l.;nv. That li- would not have obtained a Certificate, 
from thai Society of People had he been aiding and assisting 
the Enomy, is also evident from their common Practice. From 
thf-sc proofs and Circumstances it cannot be inferred from 
ll»e Uiw.s or in strict Ju^tif.^ implied that George N'ai)per has 
forfeited his Estate to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania 
for any act of Treason committed by him against this or any 
of the United States of North America. And therefor I the 
Subscriber do beg Leave to put in my Claim on behalf of 
George Napper as an absent Person, for the House and Lot, 
of ground on the West side of Delaware Front Street in the 
City of Philadelphia, advertised by your agents on the fourth 
day this Instant, October, to be sold as a forfeited Estate and 
pray your Honours to take the matter into consideration and 
be pleased to give Onlers to your agents, to postpone the Sale 
thereof until the said George Xapper shall approve himself a 
Friend and Citizen of this, and of the United States, to your 
Satihfaetion when ever it shall be in his Power so to do, 
and that hin-self and children may be permitted to enjoy the 
P. emisses, in the same manner, as other good Citizen.^- are 
iniilled to, is the sincere request of one. who of right ought 
to enj(;y all the b.nrfits and privileges cf a P>ee and*ln-

INVKNTCUIF? AND ?AI>V:.S. l'\ 

Honored Sir 

I was ai)iioinltil lo the ag'iicy by the C'ouusel wlicn that 
honorable lioanl was formtnl into a Counsel of Safely, and 
whtn th.' Kni'iiiy left the City of Phila. I began lo do the 
ollico of a:;inl in tM-arohin^ for and soi/Juj; all the prop-Mty of 
persons forfoiteil and for the first 3 months had the most 
dillicnlt, laborous and disagreeable task I had ever under- 
taken. However the agents flattering themselves that 
resolution in the outset would make the business easy in the 
end, and the rublic cause would receive benefit by their 
l':xertions. 

By the order of the Counsel of Safety the agents were 
allowed L) i> el C.piur.nssions on all personal property seized 
and sold tot;o;ber with reasonable charges and by tlie act of 
Assembly passed at I^incaster March the 6ih. ITTIi the Honor- 
able the Executive Counsel are impowered lo make any allow- 
ance for the Expences of the agents that they may think 
proper. 

Now what 1 would wish to inform Counsel, is that I had 
a family of not loss than fourteen in number whoso support 
depended on what I might earn. 

And that I did no son of business e.\cept that of searching 
(or. seizing and making inventories of goods belong to 
Persons proscribed in the 3 months above mentioned, that 
after that period I croasionally persued my profession of an 
Artist but was so oflen call*^d on to the Bu.^iness of the 
agency, that the business of Portrait painting was very much 
neglected, and I disobliged many who wished to employ roe 
In that line. 

My rctpiost is thai ihe Honorable Executive Counsil will be 
pleased to make such allowance for my expenses as they 
may think reasonable for the services above mentioned. 

I have hero with enclosed an account of Particulars of what 
iii&nies pasF. d through my Hands belonging to the agency. 
also a general anount with the Sums lo be filled up and 
liallenccd in sue h manner as the Honorable Counsil may think 
reasonable which is Ihe whole amount of sales previous lo 
Oct. ITT'.t the time of taking my seat in the Assembly. 

I .-'.ni most honorable Sirs with the HighcKt respect your 
most obedient 

Hbble. servt.

Wednesday .March 19-17s:5 A. M. 

The Comntittee appointed March 12 on the petition from 
John Johnston, made report, which was read, and on motion 
and by special order, the same was read the second time, and 
adopted as follows (viz) 

The committee to whom was rofeirtd the petition of of 
John Johnston being instructed to confer wKh the Supreme 
Executive Council upon the subject matter thereof having per- 
formed that service, beg leave to report.

the seventeenth day of September 1T7C became bound v.ith and 
for William Hell in the sum of one hundred pounds, that said 
Pell was afterwards atiaintef! of High Treason, and his Esta:e 
confisca:ted, it also appears from the proceedings of the Sup- 
reme Court that Joseph Dean on the twelfth day of April 1779 
presented his claim against the Estate of William Pell and 
having proved to the satisfaction of the Court thai before 
the attainder of the said Bell, he the said Dean had bought a 
certain tract of land from him. the said Bell, and paid him 
four hundred pounds iu pait of the purchase money, and ob- 
tained a decree ih his favor that upon his paying the remainder 
to Council he should have a Deed e.Kccuted for the said land. — 
the order of Council is herewith submitted— from a vough cal- 
culation there appears to be about i:240 of the purchase money 
yet remaining unpaid— from this state of the facts your com- 
mittee are induced to submit the following resolution. 

Resolved. That the Supreme Kxec utive Council be and they 
are hereby requested to lako effectual order therein so as to

Father Joseph Greswoid now said to be on lx)ng Island in the 
State of New York. Distiller. 

Your Petitioner saith his father now and for many years 
last past hath continually been an Inhabitant of I>jng Island- 
whatever he may mean by saying for many years last past and 
continually I will refer to your Honourable Board to Deter- 
mine — But I can Qualify to a certainty that I was at New York 
In March 1775 and repeatedly, at his Fathers House for to get 
him to Render me an account which he had against Widow 
Heysham and then his Father lived in New York in Pearl 
Street where his House & Distillery stood and were I saw 
at DitTerent limes his Father employed in the Still House and 
one time I saw him, his Wife, Daughter and a Sou, at break- 
fast together in one Room and after several times calling I 
got the account I wanted. In may following 1775 I went to 
New York r.gain, and finding a mi-stake in the account he had 
given me. I called at his house and found him and .'■ome of the 
F'amily, living at the same place as above. I called several 
times at his House as Usual, and I can say with truth, that he 
hath owned that house for this Thirty years and always ac- 
cupied it himself and in ,Iuly or August 1775 said Greswold 
came into this City, where I saw him. and after some Inquiry, 
1 found he had hired William Masters' Still House at King- 
singten. Mr. Wm. Masters" now tells me that old Joseph Gres- 
wold did hire his Still House, for about Twelve Months, were 
said Greswold and his son lived in the Still House loft, where 
they Fat. Drank and Slept, and Cooked their Victualls at the 
fire of the Still and old Greswold paid him the rent, and Mr. 
Masters also tells me Greswold Kept a store in Second Street 
next to were John Fromborger now lives, where he kept his 
Liquors for Sale, and I do declare I have seen him at that store 
Repeatedly putting casks in and out of said Store, and I am

Your Petitioner owns his Father rented a Distillery Near 
this City were he Continued a few Weeks, together at different 
tinios. If he had been candid and owned it to hav been a few 
Months at a time instead of weelvS, it would have appered 
to nic to been nearer to facts he also owns his father returned 
from this place to Long Island before the enemy took posses- 
sion of New York, here I agree with him his father left this 
City about the middle of the year 1776 and before the enemy 
got to New York and when he got there that was the time 
when he acted so much of an enemy to our Cause, that the said 
Joseph Greswold was taken up with a number more, and as 
I was well Informed was either sent to Goal into Connecticut, 
or held to Hail fjr good behavior to our Cause, during the 
War. Hy the Order of the Authority then in power at New 
York, when I found Old GreswaUl was gone from this city 
and hearing of the above account it led me to ask Isaac I>ort 
the Vendue Cryer the following Questions and his answers 
to them, as follows. I know Ixjrt to be related to Greswold 
Vizt. I niel with Isaac Lort in the Street and asked him If 
he knew where Mr. Grc-^wold was, he answered, yes. he with a 
number more was taken up on I^ong Island and sent to Goal 
Into Ccr.iiectirul. by the Convention or Executive Council of 
New York, what said I for being a Tory, Lort said yes, I 
believe so, some tinu- after the Enemy got to New York, I 
met with I>ort again in the Street, I asked him then. If he 
knew where Mr. Greswold was, he said yes. he is got out of 
(Joal, and Is at New York. I asked him if he know how he 
pot out of Goal, he said no. but he Is out, and is at New York, 
this Is all I can rememher on the two Conversations as above, 
and to the be.st of my knowledge can be qualified to it — this 
npi>ears to me he hath not acted void of Offence towards this 
Country— whatever he may mean by taylng his Country.

the store in Second Stroit and his father was all the time, at 
the head of the trade, Iht y Carried on here, he al.so owns that 
he heard that his fatlur was sent to Goal into Connecticut 
with a number more; Uy General Washingtons Orders and 
after the Knemy got lo New York he says he was informed that 
Governor Trumbull gave his Father a Parole to go to his 
Family, tliis may bo the Ca.se but according to what I heard 
at or about that lime said Grcswold with some others, broke 
out of Goal, and went to the Enemy at New York, and ac- 
cording to Lorts Expression in saying he is out of Goal, and 
Is at New York, the proofs of this last of this matter, will 
rest with the propei persons, to be applied to in Connecticut, 
who had them in charge, at that time, or if the Governor pave 
any such a Parole to Gre.swold or not— old Grcswold and one 
Son is in New York and from Report of Men of credit they 
are both Enemy's to our Cause, but the proofs of this cannot 
be well obtained, I fear till the En.-niy leaves it and as for 
your Petitioner all the Inquiry I have made, about him. I 
cannot find that he is any friend of our Cause, for I am well 
Informed he never took the oath to this State, and now applys 
for Relief under its Laws I have Received the following Note 
from the Lieutenant Ofiice of this City— July iOth 1779 Joseph 
Grcswold Junr. Dr. to the State of Pennsylvania since the 12th 
Sept. 1777 in the 5th Class of Militia £21 10 he Promised to 
pay It but went away and hath not payed it yet &. we have 
been informed of his being in Town Repeatedly, but never 
could find where he put up. 

I have done my best Endeavours to pet you all the informa- 
tion I am able, concorning Greswold's Case and I hope it will 
be satisfactory. 

From your very Hunil'I. ?ervt. to Command.

Sir. 

I would beg leave to drop a few hints, relating to the 
Agents office, first with respect that part of Galloway's Estate 
called Hog Island, Col. Thco. Proctor has laid a Claim to 
two thirds of it, by virtue of rights obtained by h.m. of John 
Reed and the heirs of John Hughs, which rests as I am in- 
fornud on a mutual agreement, between Read, Hugh & Galki- 
way, that all purchases made by either should Le equally 
divided among the three, that Galloway made the purchase 
of HoK Island is prety ccitain, but that he ever fullfillod h:s 
Covenant by assigning any part therfoff to Hughes on Rea<l 
is a doubt secondly with respect to John Clerks PZstatc. I 
have no doubt but the right is in Clerk both to real and 
personal, but I fear it will be difflcuit to prove it by the best 
Information I have yet obtained the i.-iatter stands as follows, 
the ICstate formerly belonged to one Kickmly the Father of 
the present Occupant. It was sold by the Sheriff. John CUrk 
at the Sale pave out he was going to purchase for the s<l. 
KIrhmly by which means it wa.«? knocked off to him at a 
very low price Some time after (cerk anfl Kichmby living in 
the .same house) a Quarrel Insues when Clerk with the assis- 
tance of the present Occupant drove iho poor old man and hH

which a sham conveyance of th*- LTstate was made by sd. 
Clerk to John Ho^s Escj. who has since conveye<l it to Eiiztb 
Miller otherwise Kfj^hmby. there Is no prouf as yet that Clerk 
was ever ninrried to the above woman and iis said she holds 
the personal Estate by a bill of sale proms .1 Clerk made 6 or 
7 years ago. I shall ad a few names for Proscription not
